Caldera - Volcanic Green Tea
Ciwedy, West Java, Indonesia

The Caldera is one of the more unique traditional green teas we've ever had.

This tea is a straight-up green grown on the island of Java in Indonesia on the banks of a volcanic crater lake. From the volcanic soil, it gathers a light smokey, ashy taste that we guarantee is not anywhere close to a lapsang souchong, it's much lighter. With the body of a Chinese green tea, soft vegetal and light grassy notes, it has a very soft volcanic undertone that makes it just unique enough to stand out from the rest of our teas.
